This blog is set up to give my students access to information relevant to the content of the classes I teach at UVU and BYU. I will be posting links to blog posts, websites, and news that will be of particular interest to them, as well as digital downloads of my syllabi and in-class handouts. I will also be posting student work and in class demos. The posts can be sorted for relevancy by the labels list on the left side. I've also integrated my Twitter account on the left hand side for quick links that aren't deserving of larger articles.

Speed Paint 3

Today we moved past the black and white landscapes that we've been copying into still lifes. With this series of copies I want them to do them in two tones while keeping within the one hour limit. They also selected their own images to copy, while before I gave them a selection of simple atmospheric landscapes to choose from. The limitations of the two color palette can be seen in my selection. I chose a Chardin still life that includes a green apple and some yellowish tones, but I went with a blue and an orange as my base colors, neither of which can give me those two colors. By using the value scale that Chardin has and by maintaining the temperature relationships, I can still approximate a copy that gives a similar sense as the original.

My copy is below.
